WHAT THE BOSS THINKS
On welcoming PSG to Molineux
“The lads are really up for it. I’m trying to treat it like it’s just another game of football and is another opportunity for the players to develop and showcase their skills.
“Even though we have a young group, I know there will be a lot of people watching the older members of the team with a view to potentially taking them on loan, so it’s a great game for many reasons.
“It’s at Molineux, which is amazing. I’ve been fortunate enough to play there a couple of times, so I know that it will be fantastic for the players.”
On playing under the Molineux lights
“It’s also a night game, which are always really special. I don’t know what it is about night games – and it might sound a bit odd to your everyday person – but playing under the lights at Molineux always gives a different feeling to playing in the day.
“There should be a really good crowd there and this is something that not a lot of the lads have experienced, and the fact that it’s PSG; foreign opposition, league opposition, with a big name, brings a bit more to it.
“It’s a really exciting game for everybody and an opportunity for the lads to showcase their abilities once again, and hopefully show everybody the direction that the club’s going in, which is forward and upwards every day.”
